NeuroElf is a Matlab-based toolbox for working with neuro-imaging data. Please be aware that NeuroElf was and is not meant as a replacement for any of the more traditional and full-fledged neuro-imaging tools (such as BrainVoyager QX, SPM, AFNI, FSL, FreeSurfer, …), but rather meant to be used in addition to those, as it augments some of their functionality, facilitating a few of the tasks that might otherwise be more difficult to achieve for those researchers who are not as familiar with coding their own routines in Matlab.
Core elements of the toolbox's functionality are
On top of this “core” functionality operates a GUI that allows the user to access some of the functionality of the core elements via dialogs and forms. In particular it is able to visualize voxel- and surface-based objects, to compute (in a limited capacity) and display statistical results, and create tables and screenshots of those.
Another set of features covers the ease by which data can be manipulated, but from the command line and the graphical user interface. Particularly the 3D drawing tools have been substantially enhanced in recent releases.
Additionally, some automatization routines (e.g. a small UI for batching preprocessing of multiple subjects using the functionality of SPM5/8), analysis functionality (e.g. robust regression of second-level neuroimaging data), as well as some further visualization capabilities (e.g. display of VOI-based averaged trial-locked BOLD responses) are provided.

Given that Matlab's syntax has changed over the years, and some features are not available in very old versions, currently NeuroElf runs (to the best of my knowledge) under the following environments:
